Dogs in Action
By

Rating
From mustering mobs to detecting detonators, man's best friend is also often our right-hand dog. With their super-sharp senses our four-legged friends do our dirty work with little more in the way of payment than a pat and a bowl of biscuits. This book celebrates all the feats of courage and dogged determination that our canine colleagues do daily to improve and protect human life. From pulling sleds to digging out drugs and from leading the blind to looking for the lost, New Zealand author Maria Alomajan fleshes out each story with colourful and heart-warming anecdote from the owners and trainers of these selfless animals, together with a host of fabulous photographs.
